    Default Judge cancels trial, tosses Apple's FRAND lawsuit against Google's Motorola Mobility (via FOSS)

    Judge cancels trial, tosses Apple's FRAND lawsuit against Google's Motorola Mobility

    Following a hearing in the morning, a federal judge in the Western District of Wisconsin has canceled an Apple v. Motorola Mobility trial that was scheduled to start today at 1 PM Central Time and has dismissed the entire case with prejudice, meaning that the only way Apple can salvage these claims is through an appeal (but not through refiling in another U.S. district court).

    "I think Apple missed an opportunity to make important headway against Motorola Mobility."

    This almost makes the author of the article sound like an Apple fan. Just saying.

    Finally, a judge that's getting tired of Apple's constant abusing of the patent system and suing. Apple really should just quit while it's ahead.

    What you posted has nothing to do with the actual content of this case. Apple sued Motorola to force Motorola to offer apple a fair licensing fee.

    Actually, Apple sued because they wanted Motorola to offer Apple cheaper licensing than anyone else normally would get under FRAND. Motorola refused. Why should Motorola be forced to give Apple a financial advantage over any other licensee? That's why the judge threw out the case.

    Please do some research on Motorola and Apple's legal tussles. What Motorola has asked of Apple was higher than any other license they have granted to any other licensee. We know that for a fact.

    The reason the judge threw out the case wasn't that Apple was demanding too low of an amount, it was that Apple decided they wanted to cap the possible license fee before negotiations in the court had even begun. After all of the negotiating, the license fees could have ended up at $1 or less per device, but the Judge took offense to the hard line Apple took, hence the reason why she threw the case out.
